If nothing else one has to give credit to the WWE for attempting to spread out further than the squared circle. While their attempt at a new football franchise failed, their diving into the world of film has done well for them. Some movies hit highs and some drop to lows but they're almost always entertaining. They also provide a jumping board for the careers of their wrestlers. Such is the case with John Cena.

Cena has starred in one film already, the well received THE MARINE. An action film seemed a natural leap for him and he did a fine job handling acting and action chores both with ease. The next step was finding a follow up vehicle and that came about with the new release 12 ROUNDS.

Cena stars as New Orleans policeman Danny Fisher who winds up by circumstance in the middle of an FBI hunt to track down a terrorist named Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen). A chase follows and after he stops the terrorist, Jackson tells his girlfriend to run before he takes the time to notice an oncoming truck in her path. Blaming Fisher for her death, he swears they'll meet again.

Fast forward one year later and Danny is now a detective. He heads to work only to get a phone call. It's Jackson and he informs Danny that he's taken Danny's girlfriend Molly (Ashley Scott) hostage. Just to let him know he's serious, Jackson blows up Danny and Molly's house while Danny watches. He then tells him they're going to play a game with the life of Molly hanging in the balance. All Danny has to do is win the majority of the 12 rounds Jackson has planned for him.

Danny contacts his partner on the force for assistance and then heads out to take on the first round.

The last time I watched a WWE movie starring John Cena... let's just say, I love my action hot and heavy and ended up VERY satisfied, haha.

So it's absolutely NO surprise to me that 12 Rounds is a classic.

So many things to admire about a movie like this... of course you can't take the good without the bad. The first 15 minutes were some of the most predictable and generic cheesiness I have ever seen in my life.

I was almost ready to turn the movie off after those horrible 15 minutes, but then... John Cena began the chase, and when the storyline finally kicked in, this movie completely blew me away.

Everything from car crashes to explosions to shootings... 12 Rounds does it all.

I can't imagine how difficult it was to film something like this. I can't imagine how much money it cost to waste all those vehicles! Actually the same thought comes to mind with ANY action movie. It must cost a fortune.

John Cena proves why he was chosen for this role- his acting skills are almost as good as his performance in the ring. He truly has a career as a movie star when his wrestling career is over.

The storyline is about John Cena's character accidentally killing a woman. To make a long story short, he goes to arrest a bad man, the wife/girlfriend of this man happens to be hit by a car right in front of them, so the guy takes it personally and, one year later when he mysteriously gets out of jail, he decides to take his revenge against Cena.

His revenge happens to be a carefully orchestrated and elaborate set of rounds that Cena MUST follow, or else his wife dies.

This movie is highly recommended for those who love movies such as Speed. GREAT edge of your seat action.

This is a decent action film with some great action scenes. In the movie, police officer Danny Fisher (Jon Cena) and his partner step and apprehend a maniacal criminal, Miles Jackson (Aidan Gillen). During the arrest, jackson's girlfriend is killed by a motorist. Years later, Jackson returns to get his revenge on the now detective, Fisher. What ensues is a complicated 'game' of cryptic messages and dead-ends while Det. Fisher tries to save his girlfriend who has been kidnapped by jackson. The suspense does lag at times because Fisher must deal with the governmental officers who are also after Jackson and are holding back information. As Fisher completes the 12 rounds (challenges), the tension does build but not as well as in other classics of the same genre. Still, it is enjoyable action fare.

This extreme cut version of this action movie on Blu-Ray, arrived on time and intact, with no damage to either the discs or the case that the discs came in. Picture, sound and features playback is superb. A good action yarn, with plenty of twists and turns along the way, I would recommend this Blu-Ray movie, to anyone who purchases it online from amazon.com.

The constant camera shake is so bad and overdone it prompted me to write the first review I've done. Plot, story, acting and action have all been covered by other reviewers so if you can tolerate the constant shake you may like this movie for what it is. The camera shake when used effectively can add to a film, when over done it over powers other elements. Personally the other elements aren't strong enough to overcome this detraction.
